Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.

Description:

The Poetry of Truth

In this workshop with Chris Beckett we will explore the poet's dedication to Truth, using examples of Ethiopian poems about fakery and injustice to spark your own poems. Chris will also reference his new collection 'Tenderfoot' which confronts hard truths behind his enduring love for this beautiful country and people. How do poets deal with inequality/injustice? How do they represent Truth?
